Abstract:

Blessed John of Avila was an eloquent preacher and distinguished member of the sixteenth-century Spanish school of mystics and ascetics. His most inspiring sermons were collected by his disciples and revised later by the Master himself without losing in reading any of that dynamic force which moved his hearers to deep fervour. The sermons contained in this volume treat of the necessity of knowing, conversing with, and abandoning oneself to the Holy Ghost, since His work is the task of completing the work of Jesus Christ: they show that Christian perfection must be based on the operation of the Holy Ghost on the soul.
